Cerebellar functional areas

Anatomical shape/location of cerebellar areas is a key to their function and related tract.
Vermis = Spinocerebellar = Axial equilibrium.
Vermis: right down the axis of cerebellum, and vertically segmented like a spinal column.
Flocculonodular lobe = Vestibulocerebellar = Ear, eye, body coordination.
Flocculonodular lobe: flares out to the edges, just like ears.
Hemispheres of cerebellum = Cerebrocerebellar = Peripheral coordination.
Hemispheres: around periphery of cerebellum, and tract to cerebral hemispheres.
